    The Pixel Project Weekend Webinar Series 2010

The Pixel Project, an innovative global Web 2.0-driven 
awareness-and-fund raising Violence Against Women (VAW) campaign, is 
pleased to announce "The Pixel Project Weekend Webinar 2010 Series", a 
number of live online public education seminars on gender-based violence 
that will be broadcast live from February 2010 onwards.

The first webinar will be by White Ribbon, the largest campaign in the 
world of men working to end VAW and will take place at 6pm EST on Friday 
5 February 2010. Aside from White Ribbon, upcoming webinar speakers 
include representatives from UNIFEM, Cairo-based El Karama, the 
award-winning India-based Bell Bajao campaign, Malaysia's Women's Aid 
Organisation and the USA's National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

These free, interactive video events will be hosted by 
(http://www.UStream.tv <http://www.ustream.tv/>) as well as being 
streamed via the Community Buzz section of The Pixel Project's website 
(http://www.thepixelproject.net <http://www.thepixelproject.net/>). They 
will take place every two to four weeks on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, 
depending on the location and time zone where the lead speakers are based.

Viewers are encouraged to register via "Say NO" and the Webinar pages of 
The Pixel Project's website's Community Buzz section. To take part in 
the live Q&A sessions, you can ask via UStream during which the speaker 
will take questions directly.

In addition, each viewer will be automatically counted as an "action" 
towards helping UNIFEM's "Say NO -- UNiTE" campaign's bid to raise 1 
million grassroots actions against VAW by November 2010.

The Pixel Project is a volunteer-led VAW organisation whose mission is 
to take fund-and-awareness raising for the VAW cause into the 21st 
Century by delivering innovative, powerful viral campaigns across 
various online and virtual channels including social media. Their first 
project is to turbo-charge global awareness about VAW using social media 
while raising US$1 million for Malaysia's Women's Aid Organisation 
<http://www.wao.org.my/> and the U.S.A.'s National Coalition Against 
Domestic Violence <http://www.ncadv.org/> by getting a global audience 
to collectively unveil a million-pixel mystery collage of Celebrity Male 
Role Models at US$1 per pixel.
